Soybeans are full of phyto-oestrogens, which are helpful for women suffering from menopausal symptoms. Read my blog post on menopause for more information
If using dried soybeans – soak them over night, and then simmer until tender (usually takes around 2 hours)
If using canned soybeans – rinse the beans well before use. These are already cooked.
